Aerospace and Aviation Industry and Dust Collection
Introduction to Dust and Fume Collection for Aerospace and Aviation
Manufacturing in the commercial aerospace and aviation industry has benefited from an improved economy, including a boom in international orders. In 2016, Boeing and Airbus, alone, saw a backlog of more than 10,000 aircraft. Manufacturers must keep production high, yet maintain the highest quality—all the while minimizing cost overruns.
Today’s factory floor requires constant vigilance from plant managers. As if production schedules were not enough pressure, managers must constantly maintain a safe and clean workplace. For example, air quality must be monitored both for the safety of workers and for regulatory compliance. Dust collection equipment is essential in facilities that use welding or metal cutting in order to maintain this air quality.
